Tomb World life form.
Slither stings are 10-15 cm long and occur in the lower Tomb galleries of Tomb World. Usually near moisture sources.
The Slither Stings are nearly blind but can be scared off with very bright light. They consume the dry mummified tissue of the dead
They make no difference between a life or a dead body and also hunt other Tomb Vermin that is smaller than them.
Their bites are painfull and can cause life threatening wounds. They are very rarely encountered at the main sight seeing paths.
Tomb guides shot and kill them on site.
 Not all the dead are mummified.
